Combat lasted 4 phases one turn. 12 Seconds of combat but

intense activity. Experience time -

I honestly thought this would be a dreadful encounter. I knew
once the giant attacked it would've been all over for some.
He could've killed anyone with a single blow likely. But
I did it on purely random factors. Rolled his position, and
angle from ship based on a random 360 degree circle. Same for
his fall. If he fell 90 degrees the ship might've sunk. He
was just out of reach by one phase or he'd have gotten a strike
in. Oh well. Theres always next time :)
Sea Giant Stats -
If you've guessed he was a Kotothi giant intent on capture
of the ship after slaughtering a few folks. He didn't
get change to use his net or spells. :<
Hit Points - 120 he took 168.

Day 31 - Rest of the day is cleanup of the ship and fixing
the timber repairs and moving things around in the hold.
There is a storm later that afternoon previously reported
on in part A and other update.
Day 32 - Nothing
Day 33 - That night the ship encounters those 2 other
Marentian merchants and are friendly encounters.
Day 34 -
By now the ship has travelled for almost 2 full weeks.
The crew and passengers are testy and anxious to get
to land. This close to Marentia folks prepare their
material for landfall soon.
As they get closer to shore more and more ships are
seen going to and fro.
As the ship spots Sivas mid-morning everyone notices
a major inrease in ship traffic. In fact the time
leaving port there were half maybe a third the amount
of ships. Most of them are military triremes and other
military ships going about maneuvers, loading of cargo
or other operations.
Aren explains: "They must be building up in case we
failed a military force to go against Clima. We
may be just in time."
Farseeker: "Those two ships there. They were slated
to be deconstructed for parts when I last saw them
near the Sivas fort."
[An hour later Aren and Xian hide below deck. A
pilot ship arrives from port and meets the ship.
A port pilot, 2 officers, 4 crew and 4 military
personnel with a military officer board the ship.
By now Damon has flown the Marentian flag but
an inspection is in order. The pilot and crew
get with Damon to plot a course in the harbor. Its
too crowded to actually dock at this point and
may have to wait.
Officier: "State your business."
Farseeker: "On designated mission by your superiors.
We can't discuss the matter."
Offiicer: "You will and can or you won't be entering
Marta: "How long before we can dock?"
OFficier: "Never if I have anything to say about it."
Farseeker: "Listen." [Farseeker steps forward closer
to the officer. The other guards for the officer
place hands on sword. The officer waves his hand
and Farseeker whispers to the man and leans back.
The officer turns pale then turns to a guard and
the guard rushes to the pilot boat. A crewman
quickly pilots the boat back to shore.]
Officer: "This will have to be checked out."
Farseeker: "Of course. till then. Let me introduce
you to some folks."
[Farseeker begins introductions but in general does
not give details. Two guards return from below
deck and report the ship only has material and
personell aboard. No mention of Aren or Xian. A
head count is given to the officer. When the
guards and officer confer Caladan asks Farseeker
what he said]
Farseeker: "Just a military code given by the King's
staff. It will have to be verified. Once it is
then we'll have free access into Lake Sivas and
[A half hour later a new officer comes to the ship
with the boat that went to shore. This one is
dressed with some medals in full uniform]
New Officer: "Sorry for the delay. We know who you
are now. Do you have anything to declare first?"
Farseeker: "Only code green on success and no hostiles
Officer: "What is your destination?"
Farseeker: "That is up to you."
New Officer: "No. We know your expected at Maren. Pleae
sail there immediately. You know the way or need an
Farseeker: "Our Captain Damon will be fine to find it,
thank you captain."
Captain: "I do have orders that we should inspect the
ship to ensure things."
Farseeker: "Is this required?"
Captain: "I'm afraid so."
[An hour later after a through search of the ship
the Marentians return topside. They inspected
virtually all the gear. Discussion of magical
items was done. The captain wanted to document
or confiscate it but his orders were to give the
ship free reign. Not even an official log entry
was made of the event. Which surprised even
Damon as every ship entering port has to have some
records made. The Marentian pilot exits the ship
with the others when he realized no docking into
port will be made.]
[The small pilot ship orders a larger craft to come
out to retrieve the bodies of the dead that were
preserved by Chion. Valgor, Diplomats Vaeth, Rua,
Gord, Corz, Troyis and Shah are gathered to be
taken ashore for burial or processing to their
homeland. Cholan is awakened when he is moved to
the ship as well and its promoised he will get
a highly skilled healer to help. They will try
to find one skilled in Regeneration to help his
hand but don't know of the abilities of those already
[After almost 3 hours in the harbor of Sivas the
ship leaves the shallow waters and enters Lake
Sivas toward Maren 80 miles way. By now its
[Aren and Xian come topside. When asked Trembyl
explains that he used an illusion to make Aren
look like a normal person twice.]
Day 35 -
[That night the serpent is spotted but that's the only
encounter. Lake craft is spotted but mostly are
fishermen or pleasure craft going various ways.]
[About 11:30 that evening the ship slows down and enters
Maren's port. Being so late at night 2 pilots are
sent to navigate the port waterways and guide the
ship into a docking position. It takes a good 25
minutes to dock and process the ropes and anchors.
In that time a contigent of guards and others are
But being near midnight the highest officer is a
Major who comes to the ship with a group of 20 guards.
Two civilans in silks also approach the ship.
The major boards.
Major: "I am Major Jensen. We are eager to hear of
your mission specifics. We will have to debrief
each one of you and process the others. There
are diplomatic issues to deal with."
Civilian: "I am Kam Angle aide to his Majesty King
Maros. The King would be asleep by now from a long
day's work. But I am in a position to offer sleeping
quarters in the castle for a morning meeting with him.
We have already cleared the morning session's events
for the meeting. For the diplomats they will also
be givne quarters. However everyone will have to
submit to some security precautions."
Major Jensen: "Entering the castle no one will be
armed. Weapons will be taken at the entrance and
stored. You will get them back. We will have
inspections of persons to ensure no violations. We
will also inspect for magical items that could endanger
the security of the castle or its people. If you have
anything to declare beforehand do so. If anyone
needs immediate healing we have healers. Same for
food or other services. These guards will escoret
everyone to the castle. We have carriages waiting."
Farseeker: "The ship?"
Major Jensen: "We will leave snetries. Our orders are
unspecific at this point. I'm sure a full disclosure
of its contents and inventory will have to be done.
But not tonight. So there will be time to discuss
Damon: "I wish to remain here on board."
Major Jensen: "You must be tired --"
Angle: "That is fine." [The Major hushes and nods]
Situation: Ship is in Maren City capital of Marentia.
There is going to be debriefings and questioning
tomorrow likely all day after a meeting with the
king. Discussion of mission parameters will be asked
and reasked. If there is anything you are going to
hide let me know. If not I assume you tell everything.
At this point no major need to role play it but I may
in next update some. If you have anything else to
declare or do let me know as well.
At this point the adventure for you guys is 99% over
For me its 90%. I still have a ton of logistical things
to do. I will be finalizing the 2 week stuff for folks
and getting back to you.
Monday I hope to do the King's stuff. By then hope to
be done with the 2 week stuff as well. Then we'll move on.
Congratulations for all those who lived!
Next update Monday I hope..
More to come in private email this wekened or next week
in the game...stay tuned..
[Website is down...can't get on it for some reason now. May be server maint.
